I'm a fighter not a lover / I'm a lover not a fighter by Patrick Martinez

Happy birthday to artist Patrick Martinez.  I really like his work.  He loves to utilize neon, he makes great social commentary and he’s not afraid to take his art to the streets.  All good things, according2g.  You can see photos from his LA solo show “Hustlemania” which took place in early 2011 here.  Have a great day Patrick!

Los Angeles!  One of the most gorgeous men to have ever walked among us, Tony Ward, is being immortalized in an exhibit entitled “Ward of the State” at Rivera and Rivera in West Hollywood.  18 artists (including Greg Gorman, Steven Klein, Patrick Hoelck, Patrick Martinez, Herb Ritts, Estevan Oriol, RETNA, Tony Ward, Paul Rusconi, Bruce Weber, Robert Standish, Michael Gregg Michaud, Jules Muck, Rick Castro, Christoph Schmidberger, Ray Turner and Maya Mercer) have paid tribute to the man and the muse who Paris Vogue called “male icon of the century.”  Fashionistas will recognize Tony Ward from his appearances in ads for Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana and Calvin Klein.  He has also been prominently featured in Madonna’s racy “Justify My Love” video as well as her “Sex” book.

The exhibit is great as you’ll see tributes to the man in paintings, photography and video.  You’ll see sides of Tony Ward that you’ve never seen before and you’ll also see sides of him that you’ll want to stare at over and over again.



“Ward of the State” is showing at Rivera and Rivera (located at 454 North Robertson Blvd.) in West Hollywood through June 20, 2011.

“Hustlemania” by Patrick Martinez

Hustlemania by Patrick Martinez.  Now showing at Known Gallery in Los Angeles through April 9, 2011

Los Angeles!  If you reside in NYC or LA, you’ve surely seen stickers all over the place that feature a 40 of Olde English, a bag of Cheetos, rotting fruit and a jug of Coca Cola with the caption “Fresh Produce.”  The genius social commentary was made by Patrick Martinez who has a great exhibit at the Known Gallery in Los Angeles called “Hustlemania.”   The mixed media exhibit is definitely a feast for the eyes and will give your brain plenty to chew on long after you leave the gallery.  I could go on for days about the brilliance of the sad realities of a woman feeding her baby Pepsi while on her cellphone, but instead, I’ll let the following pictures speak for themselves.  I should also mention there are so many more great works of art not pictured, so you should definitely see “Hustlemania.”

Fresh Produce by Patrick Martinez

Don’t miss this really great exhibit!  “Hustlemania” by Patrick Martinez runs until April 9, 2011 at the Known Gallery.  Known Gallery is located at 441 North Fairfax in Los Angeles.
